. president george w. bush was barely mentioned by anyone at the convention except briefly from his brother jeb who said it is time to cut him a break. >> and my brother, well, i love my brother. he is a man of integrity, courage, and honor. and during incredibly challenging times, he kept us safe. so mr. president, it is time to stop blaming your predecessor for your failed economic policies. >> well, i always like to remind people that he didn't keep us safe. september 11th, 2001. >> there was that one time. >> it was after that he kept us safe. if a democrat had been president when we were hit on 9/11, the republican party would have had such villainized it. such pure love for bill. >> i think they decided down in tampa that for every minute that george w. bush was mentioned let alone seen, they were going to drop that percentage in the polls. i mean, as you mentioned earlier, americans understand by and large, 60% of them, that barack obama inherited a serious set of problems from george w. bush. two wars that have cost up upwards of $2 trillion, $3 trillion, an economy that cra

heard of a man named george w. bush. we made a big deal on this show about the fact that george w. bush was not going to the republican national convention. we noted it, everybody noted it. it seemed important. right? after leaving the country fighting two wars and in financial catastrophe, financial ruin four short years ago, mr. bush's party seemed not ready to embrace him or his legacy. and it is true that mr. bush did not go to the convention. he was not there in person. but it turned out he didn't really need to be there in person. his stamp was all over the place in tampa. beyond the glossy "he was a nice guy" video, substantively, george w. bush's foreign policy was the foreign policy of this republican convention. and apparently it is the foreign policy of the republican party's presidential nominee this year. mr. bush's brother, jeb, front paged his convention speech with a well-received defense/celebration of george w. bush foreign policy. >> my granddad, my grandfather and my father have been incredible role models for me and served our country honorably. and my brother, well, i

they have a new plan of attack. it's not subtle and it's ugly. and mitt romney doesn't want george w. bush anywhere near him. but going to the cayman islands to talk investments wasn't what he had in mind. the story of the day coming up. >>> all that, plus samuel l. jackson is reaching out to voters with an ad you'll want to see. this is "politicsnation" on msnbc. >> mitt romney a week ago they were ready to count the guy out and now he's bounced back and he's on a bus tour in ohio. he's been working very hard kissing babies and freeloaders. babies and freeloaders. facebook yet? the "politicsnation" conversation is going all day long. and today our fans had a lot to say about the romney harvesting comment. kalar says, he's never been a job creator. he's a profit harvester. our facebook family was happy about the voting in eye yeah. anthony says, go iowa. let's get this election going. we have a lot more on that first swing state to vote a little later in the program. we want to hear what you think, too. head over to facebook and search poins and like us "politicsnati and like us to keep the convers

decision made in march 2003, which is when then-president george w. bush ordered the u.s.-led invasion of iraq, march 2003. it was also the month when it was ordered that the flag-draped couffins of american service members killed abroad could not be photographed when those coffins got back to the united states. that change in policy under george w. bush was a source of anger and controversy. it is why coffins were sometimes used in anti-iraq war protests to visually represent those real caskets of americans killed in the war that the bush administration would not allow the country to see. the bush administration banned the media from showing those dignified transfer ceremonies as the invasion of iraq started in 2003. and they kept the policy in place throughout george w. bush's time in office. as the country waged two of the longest wars in our history. it was not until the new president replaced george w. bush that the ban was rescinded. on thursday, february 26th, 2009, just five weeks after president barack obama was inaugurated, the defense department lifted the ban and one week afte

inherited from george w. bush. i mean, the economy fell off a complete cliff. we have not had an economic calamity corresponding to this since the great depression and it's really amazing that we are doing as well as we are doing given how far and how fast the economy fell in 2008 and it fell on george w. bush's watch and it fell because george w. bush was not watching. his regulators were not watching wall street. george w. bush himself was not watching his budget. you know, the federal reserve board was not doing its job. i mean, you had an administration in george w. bush that talk about letting the economy go into free-fall. that administration did it. and barack obama i think has done a very credible job in difficult circumstances getting the economy back on track. it's still not there, but it is moving in the right direction. >> grover, let me ask you a question. has any president in the history of the united states ever handed a bigger financial crisis over to the guy that followed him than george bush did? >> well, if you look at -- >> yes or no. >> yeah, sure. >> who? >> herbert

two republicans presidents, george w. bush or george h.w. bush when speaking about similar matters. can you find any connection between what george w. bush used to say about compassionate conservatism, what george h.w. bush used to say about thousand points of light? >> no. and it was those ideas that compassionate conservatism that drew independent conservatives like me at the time to the republican party. interestingly, in his response on fox yesterday when he was trying to walk all this back, he kept talking about those people. i never heard the words those people from george w. bush or george h.w. bush or ronald reagan or bill clinton. those are the kinds of things that cause some concern. >> let's listen to george w. bush in 2002 talking how he believes people, everyone really deserves a chance. >> we believe that everyone deserves a chance. that everyone has value. that no insignificant person was ever born. we believe that all are diminished when any are hopeless. we are one people, committed to building a single nation of justice and opportunity. >> jonathan capeheart, in p

mortal sin. >> wait a minute, george w. bush had a reputation for reaching across the i'aisle in texas as well and ha happened when he got to washington, complete polarization and gridlock as well. my question to you is if democrats come in and there's a republican president, and they say like mitch mcconnell, our priority is to get mitt romney voted out of office, which can mitt romney do that barack obama couldn't. >> mitt romney knows how to sit down with someone and analyze the problem and find the aspects of the problem that are common ground. the democrats like to criticize this guy for making a lot of money. you don't make a lot of money without knowing how to sit down with people who may not agree with you to start. but end up agreeing with you at the end and that's what mitt romney brings to the table. >> obviously governor romney wants to talk a lot about the economy, and just what you're talking about, who can turn it around. and yet there seem to be, they're not side issues because they're core demographic issues that are affecting the party. i talked to former govern

explain to voters why he's not the same as george w. bush? because obama is clearly trying to link the two and you say it's not better, it is better and by the way, he'd take us right bab to bush. >> i think it's late to be doing that, paul. on this bush issue, i think perhaps what romney should be doing is point out how false this charge is. george bush did not cause financial collapse of autumn of 2008. that was obviously rooted in toxic mortgage-backed securities, a policy that dated back at least 15 years, including democrats who supported this sort of thing. that's explainable. so, i think he should put some distance between himself and that and then talk about what barack obama did in response to it, which was to spend 18 months passing the affordable health care act which had nothing to do with raising jobs and the economy. >> paul: we'll see if he gets that and chase his chief efforts. efforts. when we come back, the att whoa, look at allhose toys. insuring that stuff must be a pain. nah, he's probably got...

younger, president clinton, or george w. bush had to deal with because congress understood implicitly that that was an important thing to do to make sure we honored our debt and had very little to do with the current debt. we saw this last summer. that has got to be avoided. i believe -- >> on that point -- >> i believe we will come together during this lame duck session because they recognize the magnitude of this. some will be leaving congress. some will be leaving because they are going to retire. others in voluntarily. i hope they understand the magnitude of what we're dealing with here. >> patty murray indicated that democrats are willing to go off the fiscal cliff to get republicans to been on raising taxes. is that your position as congress is scheduled to come back? >> i can understand why patty said that in frustration. our position continues today let's work together. let's demonstrate to the american people -- >> when you say let's work together, what are democrats going to can see? what are they going to give up? >> we have put forward a plan. we have put forward a budget.

americans still blame george w. bush for the current economic problems not the current president. 54% say that bush, that's "w," is responsible for today's problems. just 32% say president obama. i'm going to start with doug blink brinkley, the historian to look at this broad notion. it seems to me ronald reagan benefited later in his term and his second term from his economic decision making. you might argue bill clinton benefited from george herbert walker bush's decision making. there's always a time lag. can anybody honestly blame a president for the economic conditions in his first year? when do you begin to honestly assess the effectiveness of the new policies as opposed to the policies he inherited? >> well, i think that moment usually comes when those presidents try to get re-elected. there's no way anybody can say we're worse off now than we were four years ago, as you have just delineated, chris. i mean, the country was going down the drain, people were talking about a great depression, there was a fear of stock market collapse. people were hoarding money. it's all changed, and

from george w. bush. amazing as it sounds that republicans ran on foreign policy in the era of george w. bush, they certainly did. but now in the post-george w. bush era, republicans can do no such thing. yes, they are still using the military for a prop. they unveiled their vice presidential nominee by having him literally run out from a battleship as if he had just been in there swabbing the decks or something when they happened to hear his name called, i guess i better get out there. there was no mention of the war we are currently fighting from either republican nominee at their convention. no mention of the war. no real focus on foreign policy at all except some nonspecific chest pounding about new wars they might want to start maybe in iran, syria, maybe russia. but it's the democrats including a bellowing and aggressive john kerry who were the ones who sound like this at their convention now. >> he promised to focus like a laser on al qaeda. and he has. and our forces have eliminated more of its leadership in the last three years than in all of the eight years that came before.
